AEW has a loaded roster of talent and you can check out their complete list of stars and staff so far by clicking here. There are still a lot of great sports entertainers out in the indies and although AEW might be reaching their limit, there is always room for a big name with drawing power.
A few current WWE Superstars would be great fits for AEW. This includes Harper, Sasha Banks, and The Revival just to name a few. However, WWE doesn’t seem to be letting people out of their contracts. They won’t even fire Lio Rush after he told them to.
In spite of having an already packed roster, let’s take a look at some names that are likely additions to AEW in the months to come.
Jon Moxley is someone who AEW will have interest in and now that he is no longer WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose that is looking even more likely. He put out a big teaser for Double Or Nothing with an outstanding hype video. The fact that AEW’s first event is in his current city of residence is also very convenient.
However, Mox did just sign on to act in an upcoming film about Cagefighting. Therefore, it was reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that he won’t be likely to start working the indies until that project is finished.
Tye Dillinger left WWE and he immediately had AEW rumors swirling around his name. Cody Rhodes loves Dillinger and as the Perfect 10 performs under the name Shawn Spears on the indies the chances of him ending up in AEW seem very likely as well.
Rhyno announced that he is not re-signing a contract with WWE. This is in spite of the fact that WWE offered him double his downside guarantee. He wants to travel and work the road. Rhyno also mentioned AEW as a possibility during a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet. So it wouldn’t be a big surprise to see Rhyno pop up in All Elite Wrestling.
Emma has worked under the name Tenille Dashwood since leaving WWE because that is her real name. She recently let her ROH contract expire and is no longer signed to any company that we know of, but she certainly has interest.
With AEW looking to stack their women’s division with top competitors you never know if Tenille Dashwood would be a great fit for the outstanding female wrestlers AEW already has signed.
Jack Swagger teased some All Elite friends recently. He has a big Bellator fight coming up that we could see AEW help out with. Whether The Young Bucks lead Swagger to the ring or not will not cool the speculation that the former WWE Champion could find a great home in All Elite Wrestling.
Joey Ryan is now a free agent as well. Lucha Underground let him out of his contract, but WWE reportedly has interest as well. At this stage in the King Of Sleaze’s career he is working a lot and might not want to give up that busy and lucrative indie schedule, but his ties to AEW are pretty apparent seeing how he still appears on Being The Elite and his Penis Druids spot during ALL IN nearly broke the internet.
Of course, there are other names out there that fans would love to see appear in AEW such as CM Punk, but The Second City Savior has expressed no outward interest in stepping back in the ring. This is in spite of him appearing in a mask last month to hit a GTS during an indie show. He is also still signed to a UFC contract although no future fight has been confirmed.
